I listened with much and am on the whole positively surprised. The room was OK! The bathroom had its flaws, but honestly? How much time do you spend in the room? - the hotel is very central, one is not rely on the evenings to spend in the hotel. At night it was not a problem a walk by Varadero to enjoy. The Police was very present. - there is very lots of possibilities to get out, either on foot, with the city tour bus or with the scooter/ car-ren …  read hotel review

1) nice looking hotel but very small rooms and smelling dirty bathrooms even a room change brought no improvement, all bathrooms lack ventilators. obviously a russian built hotel. nice spanish outside architecture, but 350 rooms and all the same size ( very small). they sold us this room for 2 adult and 2 children and we paid for 4 people and got an ordinary small double room the hotel director was very friendly and said i shall change hotel he has only small rooms. 2) never ever again all inclusive service at the bar happens with sincere, unfriendly, stoned faces ..., slowly, and arrogantly oinly a tip brings a ( short ) smile and ( very little) speed obviously this is willingly their habit, to force guests to give tips. allways something is not available ( for example white wine) and the red wine is rotten and undrinkable what can you do, all is already paid.? a complaint is useless and leads to no service at all you wait at the bar, and they dont see you if they do not want to see you ( they only see the tip guest) and if served you feel bad because they let you feel, that actually they do not want to work, they are foreced to. it is most annoying is to see the the fed up sincere faces of the service personnel at the bars in your holidays. of course there are exeptions, but if you do not tip after a while you become invisible, and get no table in the restaurant as there is always more guests than tables. staff is reserving some of these tables with their private stuff ( sunglasses) and when the tip guest comes, voila tehre is a free table for him, but not for everybody. this is capitalist socialism ? however, next time i want to pay for every drink and food, this guarantees fast and friendly service, and what dey dont have i must not pay. 3) absolutely first class the evening shows the dancers, about 10 girls and young men could easily perform on any stage clearly way above hotel niveau conclusion: never again all inclusive and never again quatros palmas read hotel review

This hotel has one of the most beautiful beaches, in addition, very friendly and helpful staff the rooms in the main building are totally ok. The food was except for the dinner was good, in the evening there could have been a little bit of quality support throughout the but very good. Drinks are ok, one should only the plastic cups abolished, but that is rather a general problem Varadero and the rest of the world save our ocean! I love this hotel, because it wasn't as ticks as all other bunker. read hotel review

Beautiful location right on the beach. For Varadero, where there are lots of more abominable hotels, a very nice area. Rooms with sea view are directly over the show area, very noisy until 23:00, then everything was quiet. Nap during the day and even put impossible. Always loud music. Ok, this is Cuba? Food for cuban standards good, always fresh fruit and freshly prepared meat, but also the inevitable ' essenvertrocknungs machines', in other words warm retaining containers. Dining room uncomfortable and very crowded. Specialty restaurants: the good after 3 minutes full and otherwise not recommended. Lunch great: the ... beach restaurant. The cosy bar pleased us particularly well, every evening great cuban live music and dancing. Unfortunately in 20m far from the bar only plastic cups, shame, drinks are ok Evening show suupertoll, spirited, with joy and virtuoso demonstrated. read hotel review

    The beach and sea i can only 'fantastic' say. Extensive, wide with fine sand, the right kind of beach. The sea had a bathtub temperature, crystal clear and turquoise blue.

    The everyone had a bad day, we also know, that is why i do not understand when a poor rating is based on a small rudeness! Because these are precisely the person brings you on the next day again to smile and great mood. With english you arrive to this hotel very well, also a few phrases in german, you can the staff time lady. After the cubans with very little money in the month to get, it is of course to tip or other small touches, the then also with a better service will be rewarded... No matter, whether it was the maids or bartenders! It didn't hurt us they can better life

    There are 3 restaurants and a buffet or large dining room. A lobby bar and a Cuba bar is available. The latter is very recommendable, small and quiet. The gentlemen who work there are very nice and make decent drinks. The cleanliness and hygiene of the abovementioned are typically cuban, sometimes great and sometimes not so! The kitchen offers many different, not always typical country dishes. Unfortunately! We eat gladly cuban cuisine and In the course of the time estimate learned. Rice with black beans or cuban cakes. Surprisingly, although i otherwise nothing for sweet desired have! Tips were always gladly seen, but not a must. We are only irregular tip.

    The room cleaniness was great. The maids were nice and grateful for a few nice words or a small souvenirs. The staff, at the bar or restaurant or at the reception are friendly and excluded, except for a few exceptions. Complaints were taken seriously and also taken care of. Thanks to the german gf can You always with its concerns and problems. The right demeanor but provided. A little bit spanish, however, can never harm! How it into the forest inside schallt, then schallt it again out! With friendliness and Decent serotoninergic we could have ever solve all the problems. Whether the another room was, the door couldn't be opened and so on. For Sick tourists is diagonally across from the hotel a touristenklinik. We have never in 5 years needed, because we all necessary medication always with us. So for diarrhea etc. Always be forearmed.

    We are known beach lovers. The beach and especially the ocean was unique. The pool chairs had already seen better days, but the german made the best of it. The deckchairs by the pool are 2013 renovated and therefore very. Umbrellas were available, at the beach could be new ceilings. Yes, but it is the in Cuba, only once siesta. As i said, we are to the 5'. Times here and you get used to much, because we make here only vacation and do not live here. Ergo: mainly the sun shines, the sea is bath temperature and the rum tasted!

    From the airport Varadero is highly recommended. Only half an hour away by bus. The beach is right in front of the door of the hotel and is an absolute dream! Over and over again! You can directly from the hotel shopping and places to eat. Perfect location! Buses and taxis always available. The nightlife you just had to take part, of course, on the streets of Varadero.

Off course the hotel has seen better days and in some places in need of a bit of renovation, but particularly the hotel was clean and of course, for a small tip from time to time, they nevertheless somewhat preferred and more promptly, but that is everywhere sunday The diversity and quality of the food: Every guest of the hotel has the possibility, dinner in one of the three top-à-la-carte restaurants to eat, where one an immaculate 4-course meal served, which one gladly tip for chef and basement there is. We were up to 2 times in the evening 'in ... the cafeteria', since we on tour and not for the evening reserve could, but there too, we have always found something delicious. For breakfast there was always meat, cheese, jams, muesli, cornflakes, eggs in all variants and also for our eastern european friends already warm food. And also always fruit and a good latte. If one at noon hunger felt, either in the buffet have a snack, or the grill restaurant ' tropipalma' from 4 meals (calamari, burgers, and chicken) select. (the calamari were a poem. ) Was this restaurant recommended, since you are still a stunning sunset could see. And now we come to the drinks. The selection of cocktails at the lobby, as well as cocktail bar were very extensive. And the Cuba Libre from Juan and the Sex on the Beach from Abel absolute world class. Many wrote, the service would not be good. No matter what it was, we were at the front desk quickly and efficiently helped. The twist: the manager is austrian. He has for all an ear to lend and helps also, wherever he only. A urlaubsbekanntschaft the toe verknackst and he is with you after opposite in the clinica de turistas and your doctor supports. Conclusion: The hotel isn't more the newest and in some places with a coat of paint and a bucket color use. But it is by the above. Points, as well as the location, because it was located beautifully central and one can in the evening after eating the legs were represented. The expensive and probably better hotels have the disadvantage, that they augment resorts are, but very isolated and you always into town center. I would come again. read hotel review
